Starting Dec. 19, the airline will offer flights from Honolulu to Osaka, Japan, with connecting service to Singapore and back.

From Dec. 19 to 25, Scoot is offering one-way fares of $80 from Honolulu to Osaka and $200 from Honolulu to Singapore.

Travel using the promotions must be booked by Nov. 28.

"We are pleased to enter the U.S. market through Hawaii," Lee Lik Hsin, Scoot CEO, said in a statement. "We've heard so much excitement among our frequent fliers since announcing the Honolulu route and we wanted to offer Hawaii locals a chance to experience our airline and visit one of our key destinations at an affordable rate."
Scoot will run four weekly flights to Singapore with a stopover in Osaka on twin-aisled Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
